Acetal (POM) properties at a glance

Acetal (POM, polyoxymethylene, also known as polyacetal) is a semi-crystalline, thermoplastic material, which is characterized by good mechanical properties, high dimensional stability and excellent sliding and wear behavior. Due to their properties, Acetal plastics are used as design materials in a wide range of applications with demanding operating conditions. Sustarin® is subdivided into Acetal Homopolymer (POM-H) and Acetal Copolymer (POM-C). Acetal Copolymer has better chemical resistance, while Acetal Homopolymer features slightly higher strength.

 

 

Acetal Copolymer

  • High chemical resistance 
  • High dimensional stability 
  • Low moisture absorption 
  • Excellent sliding properties 
  • High abrasion resistance 
  • Ideal combination of strength, stiffness and toughness 
  • Little tendency to creep 
  • Good machinability 
  • Favorable electrical and dielectric behavior 

Acetal Homopolymer

  • High strength of shape 
  • Low moisture absorption 
  • Good wear resistance 
  • High mechanical strength, stiffness and toughness 
  • High creep resistance 
  • Good machinability 

We use exclusively Delrin® to produce our Sustarin® H. (Delrin® is a registered trademark of DuPont de Nemours)
